yikes, just so you know, it is the twisting of the bone that breaks it more than the impact. Looks like once you are up and about you can work on Impulse control in the house while dad works on walks outside. You know, the Stay or Down until you are released to get the treat. Also waiting before going through doors as the wild child follows your through the house, stuff like that. Maybe you can teach him to carry laundry to the wsshing machine for you.
I had a laugh once when an all positive trainer tried to give me advice about lunging ( a prong works well with my boy about 95% of the time). This trainer, who doesn't know me or the dog, tried to tell me that using treats and small amounts of exposure to the stimulus, that would increase bit by bit over time, would eventually teach my boy not to lunge. I told her, "that's nice but I don't think the wild rabbits around my house will agree to that training program". Honestly, a tasty treat or chase a rabbit? Which seems like more fun? The prong collar stays on.
I hope you heal quickly.
